      k5s is fine steal i think there, but i really like checking the flop behind there alot, cause you improved and j 9 s, combodraws and pairs are alot in his range. I would go for pot control here and check behind. If blank hits and he dosnt bet i bet the turn then to check the river.
      Or if no scarecard falls on turn call his bet IP.

      Hello Tosh5457,

      Preflop: Well the case is that your equity against his range most likely would not be very good. By that I mean if you are stealing then you have to be barreling a lot than just one time. He doesn't fold his BB, he doesn't fold to CBets which already tells me that our hand is hardly gonna play against him very good.

             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    53.99%  52.44%   1.54% { 77-22, AJs-A2s, K6s+, Q7s+, J7s+, T7s+, 97s+, 87s, 76s, 65s, 54s, AQo-A3o, K7o+, Q8o+, J8o+, T8o+ }
      UTG+1  46.01%  44.47%   1.54% { K5s }

      As played
      Postflop: Well, I'd just Check/Fold it here. The board ain't the greatest. A lot of broadways gonna continue, a lot of SCs gonna continue. Also I doubt that he is going to fold any PPs.

      Best regards.
